As we all know HTM implementation is biologically constrained. My intuition tells me that there are time nuances in regards to the reception of inputs in the cortex. To be more specific, if there are 5 bits going in, the 1st bit could be received before the 2nd bit, the 2nd bit could be the last and the 5th and 3rd bits could be received at a very few time difference.
I would like to know if this kind of nuance exists in the brain, and if it exists, what is the reason why this is not implemented in HTM? It seems to me that this nuance may add a dimension to an input which could be considered as a feature.
